Mikel Obi will not rule out Chelsea finishing in the top-four in the English Premier League even though they now find themselves closer to the relegation zone.
“We have to win every game now. The top four is still achievable, we can still do it so why not? It is not beyond our reach,” the Nigeria international told the Chelsea website.
“The cups are always important as well. We are still in the Champions League, the FA Cup is going to start very soon so we have to take those very seriously at the same time, but we also want to concentrate on the league because we know we have to push up the table.”
Mikel became the 21st player to make 350 appearances in the 110 year Chelsea history after coming on as a second-half substitute in the 2-2 draw with Watford on Boxing Day.
“I want to push on and see how many more appearances I can get. For me it has been a great time here, I still enjoy it and ever since I walked into this football club I knew this was the place for me,” he said.
Ikeme Fancies Wolves fighting spirit
Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has praised his fellow Wolverhampton Wanderers teammates for digging deep to get victory over Reading in an English Championship game.
Ikeme was in goal as Wolves won 1-0 on Saturday.
Wolves are now 16th on the league table with 28 points from 23 games.
“Good result this evening, wasn’t pretty at times. But sometimes just need to dig in and thought the lads done that. Thank u for u support,” Ikeme tweeted.
The Nigeria first-choice goalkeeper has been in goal 11 times this season.
